IS THE USE OF NATURAL GAS CHEAPER TO PRODUCE ELECTRICITY?


Electricity is one of our most valuable resources. Without it, is it
impossible to do half the work required. It allows us to work
efficiently, like using computers for example, it keeps us warm and the
list could go on. Its thus all the more reason to find ways to produce
electricity in a much energy efficient way. However the electricity that
comes from nuclear and coal power plant can be quite costly.

It is therefore known that natural gas is more convienet than other
ways. When natural gas is burned in a gas turbine to produce electricity
the heat that is produced in first turbine is used in a second heat
turbine to produce more electricity or heat. As mentioned above natural
gas is a more energy efficient and cheaper than nuclear and coal power
plants. The reason being is that coal power plants emitts more carbon
dioxide and dust particles in the air. Natural gas however, emits less
corbon dioxide and dust partcles in which its much safer.

  • What work can you without electricity? - even City of Cape Town's sewage is pumped to the right places for processing - so when there is a power cut (as has happened recently it the sewage all flows into the wetlands of False Bay.
